Dawn's Meme

Dawn at By Sun and Candlelight had a cute meme. I thought it would be a fun one. I so love books...

Here are the rules...


Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
Open the book to page 123.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the next three sentences.
Tag five people.

(I did cheat a little, the first book I picked up (Charlotte Mason Companion by Karen Andreola) didn't really have 3 good sentences on that page. I used a book that I like page 123 better) :-)

This is from my all time favorite book. It tells about Emilie's life growing up...


Those were hard years after my father died, when Mama and I shared three rooms behind her little dress shop. Mama waited on the customers, did alterations, and worked on the books until late at night. I kept house - planning and shopping for meals, cooking , cleaning, doing laundry - while going to school and learning the dress business as well.



The Spirit of Loveliness by Emilie Barnes





Okay, so if you read this - tag you are it now. Please leave a comment and let me know if you take up the challenge. :-)

I took the challenge and you will laugh when you see what genious book was closest to me. I am not as avid of a reader as I used to be now that I am hooked on cardmaking. I did just finish Robin McGraw's book last week and I am reading You're All That by Paula White but it was across the room when I read your blog. Anyway, here is where I posted the challenge http://stephanieearls.
